Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a racy and refined finish. Fresh and succulent. Made from old vines of mablec in Compuertas and cabernet sauvignon from Altamira. Such finesse. Half the normal production. The best wine ever from the Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Catena winery. Drink or hold.

Flavors of coffee, baking spices, blackberry, herbs and mocha finish toasty and impressive. Overall, this is a superb Mendoza wine; drink through 2024.

The palate shows very good balance and is powerful yet elegant with abundant, fine-grained tannins, bright berry flavors and a remarkable finish. This should age with style and mellow in bottle. It's still young, but it could be drunk already. - Luis Gutierrez

Vinous, February 2015
91+ (75% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon; 18 months in new French oak, including barrels made at Lafite-Rothschild, which is the Catena family's partner in this venture): Bright, deep ruby. Dark berries, cocoa powder...   91+ (75% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon; 18 months in new French oak, including barrels made at Lafite-Rothschild, which is the Catena family's partner in this venture): Bright, deep ruby. Dark berries, cocoa powder, mocha, smoke and licorice on the nose. Plush, sweet and vinous, offering excellent definition as well as creamy depth to the flavors of currant, mocha and sexy chocolatey oak. More Old World than New in style, finishing with noble, deceptively soft tannins and excellent subtle length. This will gain in complexity with time in bottle.
